Your car may be one of your highest expenses related to your job. The maintenance and care of your car, and the gas you put in it as well as the wear and tear is a huge expense on your budget.

Those lunches that you order out and going out to lunch with your co-workers can add up to some bucks at the end of the month. The best way to handle this is to budget it.

Bringing your lunch and snacks from home most of the time will save you a bundle.
If you work in a business that does not provide the uniform or clothing, then you will have to purchase your own.

You can even buy a season ahead of time on clearance racks. If you don't mind used clothing, you can even check out thrift stores.

This is another way of maybe counteracting some of the expenses that may not be deductible and put some money back in your own pocket. Some employers offer discounted car insurance in some states. This is discounted for those who have near perfect driving records though.
